The swiveling-screen Duo has been resurrected for Windows 8. The original version of the laptop/tablet hybrid showed up late in 2010. But it was a bit ahead of its time and disappeared soon thereafter. This week at the IFA show in Berlin, Dell teased its new version of the device.

The new Duo's price and exact release date are unclear, though it's expected by the end of 2012.
